Umpires piercing pitch
reflected games final tone
-Strike three, batter’s out!

There was no joy in Mudville
Mighty Casey had struck out*

Dream

In a perfect world
God nurtures our common dream
-love encircles life!

Born

Witness the passion
for the commencement of day
delivered from night.

Safe

Each story begins
with a bright flash of day’s light
sheltered by our love.

Haiku/Senryu 4/4/2019

Spring

 

As the springtime warms
the aggie and cat’s eye roll
on the playground grass

~~~

Just five inches down
a layer of frost remains
holding back the bulbs

~~~

two robin’s spring bath
splash water from garden pond
full of melted snow

~~~

On my neighbor’s porch
a plastic Easter lily
usurps Santa Claus

~~~

Little girls red boots
running from boys holding worms
-pure squealing delight

I Write Her Weekly Haiku/Senryu Challenge #13

My first submissions to Susi Bocks Haiku/Senryu 5/7/5 Challenge 

Senryu – Major Tom

calling ground control
seven thirty seven max
landed in the trees

Haiku – In The Forest

Deep in the forest
among the emerald pines
imagination

Senryu – Hope

Every problem
presents its own solution
-given enough time
